I missed this part about an aircraft carrier... what the heck is Wyoming going to do with an aircraft carrier?
Do they think they can attack potential enemies to prevent a nuclear strike, or retaliate after one? Wouldn't that same money be far better used for civil defense programs like the Swiss do? It they did that, it would be great... maybe we'd even have manufacturers of air filters and blast doors closer than Switzerland...
I understand they aren't yet planning on doing this, and are trying to get funding to put together a recommendation if they should do it or not... but to even consider such a thing... it's the same silly path the rest of the US national defense is on. Forget civil defense, and in fact call anyone interested in civil defense a cook, and let's go drop some bombs!
